At Warrington Youth Rowing (WYR) we have four trustees from a range of business backgrounds, all of whom have a vested interest in the work we do. Find out more about them below:

Richard Sinnott (Coach and Trustee) –
As a long standing and well-respected junior rowing coach, Richard brings a large bank of rowing experience and knowledge to the trustee team. He also heads up our coaching team and is the Chairman of the Trustees.

Ben Dunne (Trustee) –
A former rower, Ben is now a highly regarded professional in the education sector. Ben’s knowledge of the education system, and particularly the Warrington schools, is invaluable to our team. Ben is not only a trustee of WYR, he is also a trustee of the River Reeves foundation.

Richard Kong (Accountant) –
With a strong background in accounting, this makes Richard the ideal person to look after our books.
